Another math genius moment in our house....
I am trying to condense the lessons in our Saxon Math 2 book and get into our Sax Math 3 book, because we haven't been diligent in doing the bookwork. I feel like we have still been learning math though. I saw more evidence of that today. Here is the conversation I had with my 6 year old.
I am paging through my Saxon Math 2 teachers manual, grouping lessons to do more of a mastery approach when I see a lesson on dozens and 1/2 dozens. I think, I am pretty sure she knows this...
Me-- Bels, do you know how much is in a dozen?
Bels-- Yeah, 12
Me-- Do you know how much is in a half dozen?
Bels-- 6... and 3 in a quarter dozen.
Me-- Ok, thanks...
Ava-- Isabel, how much in a dozen and a half?
Bels-- Hold on, um... 18.
So, I have decided to breeze through the fraction lessons and the lesson on dozens. I was pretty sure she knew everything Saxon Math 2 could offer on fractions and I was right. I just hope Saxon Math 3 offers more because we will be into that book very soon.
